Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Sweet Thursday - The Choice is Yours

Next Thursday (Oct. 18) offers an embarrassment of riches - it's the 3 bus syndrome once again.
SSBB at J's and B's in Fenham. A new venue for this amazing big band and one that deserves the support of all big band fans - I mean just the idea of listening to a big band and drinking beer in a church brings out my irreverent side.

However, for those who think it's sacrilege, there's a 'Fresher's Jam' at Bar Loco on Leazes Park Rd. with members of NUJO. Those who heard the young students at the Dun Cow on Wednesday will tell you that the standard is high.



If you lean towards the more contemporary end of the spectrum then JNE present the Olie Brice Quintet at the Jazz Café. Mike Fletcher (alto sax); George Crowley (tenor sax); Alex Bonney (cornet); Olie Brice (bass); Jeff Williams (drums).
